Trendwatch Thursday: Summer Cardigans to Blazers

Posted on Apr 30, 2009 at 8:43AM

As summer approaches, don't get caught without a haute and trendy cardigan or blazer.  Indoor air-conditioning can take the chill off the high temps, but a sleeveless sheath dress with goosebumps is not an attractive look. From white blazers to cashmere or cotton cardigans, this is an essential piece of layering for your summer wardrobe.
